Can the Oura Ring Detect COVID-19 Related Symptoms? #WearableWednesday
Quick read from GQ on potential symptom onset forecasting with the Oura Ring:
It wasn’t designed as a tool to diagnose disease, but this data might allow the ring to detect the symptoms related to COVID-19. With the caveat that it’s a preliminary study about a poorly-understood disease, a recent writeup from West Virginia University’s Rockefeller Neuroscience Institute, done in collaboration with Oura, suggests that the numbers, combined with information obtained from wearers via an in-app survey, can give three days warning of the onset of COVID-related symptoms with 95 percent accuracy.
